glusterfs SEGV on Fedora 17 from UFO fallocate(2) call
An upload of a file will cause the volume's glusterfs to SEGV when it fields a FUSE_FALLOCATE op. Swift inspects libc to determine if there is a symbol for fallocate(2) and if so will use it. And while the libc in RHEL 6 does have fallocate(2), the version of fuse in RHEL 6 does not support fallocate, and things are handled gracefully elsewhere (the kernel perhaps?) N.B. fallocate was added to version 7.19 of fuse. Fedora 17 and later (and maybe earlier too) has 7.19. RHEL 6 still has 7.13. Glusterfs uses the 7.13 version <linux/fuse.h> (in contrib/fuse-include/fuse_kernel.h) Thus on Fedora 17, with both fallocate(2) in libc and fallocate support in fuse, the fallocate invocation is dispatched to glusterfs, but the dispatch table (fuse_std_ops in xlators/mount/fuse/src/fuse-bridge.c) is too short for one thing; the fallocate opcode (43) indexes beyond the end of the table, and even when that doesn't directly cause a SEGV, the NULL pointer at that location does cause a SEGV when attempting to call the function through the pointer.
